About Me:

Just an IT professional trying to make a decent return on whatever money I can get together.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£100k
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Investing is a journey that I am only 3 years into. I mostly invest in small caps that I think have interesting characteristics, it could be mommentum, it could be value it could be quality. Anything where I think I can make 20% return within a year. I've learnt a lot in 3 years and have adapted along the way, I expect to continue to learn and adapt my strategy for some time to come.

One of the features I have always loved about Stockopedia is the Fantasy Funds capability. I know that you can run fantasy portfolios on lots of sites but I think Stockopedia does them particularly well although its surprising to me sometimes how underused they are.I personally find the insight into how other people are investing and trading in their portfolios (real or not) to be…

Hi All, I'm pretty disappointed in my investment in FairFX (LON:FFX) . All the updates seem to have been good, the direction of the company seems right, ok so Brexit and other things provide some headwind, but does that really justify the drop in the SP? My current holding is well underwater, beyond my normal tolerance, but I am having trouble letting go of it…

I held Keywords Studios (LON:KWS) from shortly after they floated until about 2 weeks ago when I cut it from my portfolio as the current draw-down started to happen. It has felt overpriced for a while and so I didn't need much encouragement to get out. I still have a lot of regard for the company though and have been tracking its price relentlessly downwards…

Hi, I've posted a few similar challenges over the years for various stocks. The general thinking is that when i'm looking at a company I should be looking for the one reason not to buy it rather than the positive reasons that confirm my bias. I've been looking at Stock Spirits (LON:STCK) for a while, ever since I started making the occasional trip to Poland…

Hi all, I'm interested in which alerts people are using on Stockopedia. I think we all probably know how to set up and get value from a Price Greater than or Price less than alert but there are a huge range of options, many of which I can't actually get to work how I think they should. If anyone from Stockopedia reads this, I would…

Thanks Herbie, that answers the question then! In other news.... Nice little bump to the Fund today from Frontier Developments (LON:FDEV) , happy to continue to hold that for a while (in the fund and personally). I also bought Instem (LON:INS) for the Fund the other day and personally. I like the business, its only small and its not growing at any steller rate but…

Good news on SciSys getting a bid offer at 254.15p. This gives me a more than 60% gain for the fund. For the purposes of the Fund I have sold out in order to release the capital (meaning I only get 246p or so) but the ones I own in my real money portfolio I will hold until the sale (hopefully) goes through. I’m keeping…

Today I sold Upwork. I like the company, I think it has a great future but the SP is trending in the wrong direction and i’m More than 20% down so as a notional stop loss approach i’m Selling. It will likely end up being at the exact bottom but I’m not prepared to risk losing more. Sometimes they just don’t work out and you…

A bit of a kick to the fund performance today. A 4.6% drop on the day largely driven by a 16% drop in Tradedesk. Tradedesk managed to only grow by 41.2% in its traditionally weakest quarter of the year rather than the 56% growth it posted last quarter! (This is still ahead of the 35% it targeted btw). This has taken 16% off the share…

Hi Herbie, Thanks, I will check out zScaler. I’m vaguely aware of them but don’t know them in depth so will check them out. Cheers Carey
